AEI YOUTH SPORTS FUND

AEI is partnering with Heritage Fund to provide financial assistance for area youth to participate in athletic and fitness programs.

Kids’ sports can be expensive and participation can be prohibitive for those with financial need. Through this fund, AEI hopes to provide additional access to athletic and fitness activities to youth with financial barriers to participation.

Youth, parents, clubs, teams, and others are eligible to apply for grants to support youth ages 18 and under who reside in Bartholomew and surrounding counties. Grants will include assistance for but not limited to: lessons, clinics, travel, equipment, program fees, dues, etc. Grants will be considered based on financial barriers to participation.
